California deal leaves more kids uninsured
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a revised annual budget to close California's $24 billion shortfall, including a $1.4 billion cut to Medi-Cal. In addition, California slashed $178.6 million from Healthy Families, its version of the Children's Health Insurance Program. In all, California's cuts could raise the number of uninsured children in the state to two million, up 915,000 from about 1.1 million in 2007, estimated the Children's Defense Fund.
